a good point. >> it begs the question i want to you answer, what are they all doing here? if nobody is interested in getting this deal? >> as dana pointed out, lots of house republicans would rather vote on something after the 1st than before. i haven't seen any indication from obama or the people around him that they are okay with going over the cliff. they really do seem to want to do something before the deadline. they seem desperate to do that. plenty of liberals say, go over the cliff. big cuts in the pentagon and big tax hikes. the white house, from all indications that i've seen, they don't want that to happen. they are scared of what could happen to the markets. >> why aren't they dalg dealing with boehner? dana, be go ahead. jumpb in here. >> i think they won their negotiating power once boehner last week failed. as dana pushed out, the only thing that can get boehner is to do something. >> reporter: i think that you're right when i said that democrats don't think that the president will have much political damage. that does seem to be coming more from democrats here in con

that sooner or later. they didn't want to scream it in the faces of legislators and say we are begging for it, really kind of chastising you to bring this on. now, that moment is here. amazon has changed their position. 40% of their sales are from smaller etailers and they handle that on their behalf. they have distribution everywhere. they were are based in washington state for a reason. 98% of the country then is not subject to tax. once you have distribution centers everywhere, now all bets are off. they say we will take this on and they may even make money on it because the 40% of etailers will pay them to handle the taxes for them. >> shannon: what i discovered if you make the transactions as a consumer and you are not charged sales tax you are supposed to be reporting it on the tax return and everyone i mentiond that to heard it for the first time so this would iron that out as well. >> it is confusing for consumers. it is not based on where you are are shopping from. it is where you are shipping to. this could go through for a lot of different reasons. to help states with taxes and two

, because i think your point begs this question. how many single women who live alone in their 40s, 50s, 60s, protect themselves at night with a bushmaster? can i answer that question for you? none. a glock, 10 millimeter glock, can i answer that one for you? none. i only bring this up, not to point it at you, to say for all those people putting up false choices there somehow we have to choose as a country whether we allow single elderly women to protect themselves from intruders, or allow our children to be sprayed with a flurry of bullets? by the way, look what happened in oregon, look what happened in colorado, look what happened in virginia. look what happened in a religious temple. look what happened in connecticut. we can't say these are random isolated events anymore. >> it's an epidemic. >> it's an epidemic and growing epidemic. i just wonder, dan, this is the last question to open it up for everybody else, come on, let's get real, buddy, what if mitt romney had an election a year from now? and he had to be the candidate that had to defend the right of americans to buy 10 millimeter
or not her sister -- doesn't know if her sister vicky is dead or alive. she's simply begging for information. she says seeing that photo, it's like reminder of that moment all over. it kills. >> gretchen: brian was just alluding to where the six children ended up who managed to escape. jean rosen had been out for breakfast. came home to his house. here he is finding out about the tragic news and sees these six children standing on his lawn. he thought they were part of a school play, maybe it was a skit they were doing. suddenly the kids were crying ask telling him our teacher is dead. we can't go back to school. what did he do? he brought them inside his home for safety. eventually a school bus driver came in, able to help him identify the children, gave them juice and stuffed animals. called their parents. the saddest part to me about this story is that later on, a parent came to his house and said, i understand that you have some children here who survived. was my child here? and he, unfortunately h to tell her no. >> steve: there is one other story that i saw this morning in the story re
. that would be the impact on it. because most of the money, the new money that that he would beg is to fund new spending. so i'm worried about this. i don't think that the leader of our nation, the one person elected by all the people, should be laying out a program to the american people that does not honestly deal with the debt threat that we have that, does not honestly lay out to the american people how we're on an unsustainable course, as every expert has said. it does not honestly talk with the american people about why medicare is in trouble, why social security is in trouble and what we need to do to fix it. our president won't even talk about that. and when somebody talks about it in a serious way to fix those programs, they get attacked by the white house. and this new budget doesn't do anything about it either. i think this is not good leadership, and i hope and i know senator mcconnell and speaker boehner have pleaded with the president to talk about these long-term systemic problems. social security, medicare, medicaid and interest on the debt is almost 60% of what we spend in
